The Most Painful Spa Visit


Okay, a little heads up here. My mother would roll her eyes and say "you didn't" if she knew what I was about to blog about. Sorry mom, but, I have always been a bit of a rebellious child. So today I had quite an experience at the day spa. Let me tell you, all the relaxing music in the world couldn't have calmed me down. I went for a Brazilian. Oh yeah, first one. Ouch! Really Ouch!!! I am so glad that there was noone else having a massage or other relaxing spa treatment done at this particular time because, I do believe I moaned/howled quite a few times. And let me tell you girls, this is not for the shy. If you are shy or embarrassed about your body...Not for you. The technician said alot of women say the pain is not bad because they have had a baby. Well, since I'm out of the loop there, I tell you this was some serious pain. It made an eyebrow or upper lip wax seem like a walk in the park. Soooo, this being said will I do it again? Oh yeah, you bet I will !!!

Sorry mom, don't be too mad, I think of it as reporting research for those who want to know!

You are now my new hero. Last year I made an appointment and had to call and cancel. These things scare me, and I have given birth several times.

Hugs and Mocha,

OWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW!!!!

I also had a beautician tell me it is more painful the week after your period finishes also...

Honestly, despite is scary demeanor, I find the epilator the way to go cause after u break through the initial jungle the first time, the hairs don't all grow back at the same rate so if you epilate every couple of weeks there are only a few hairs and it's hardly painful at all!

And now I, too, have shared too much information :P

I have to admit that I have always been curious about the Brazilian. Like your other commenters, though, I haven't been able to commit. I'm a wuss!

I agree with Stesha...you are definitely my new hero.

I was just having this conversation on twitter the other day. Go full monty or no? I guess if I were going on a tropical vacay I would. But for now, I will stray away. You brave, brave lady!

You made me chuckle...then blush...then look around the (as if any of my kids would have a clue as to what I was reading!?!) You were brave...I know that I could not do that. I won't tell your mom...you're secret is safe with me.
